FMLY, 3-30-21

Dear Ones,
 
The journey through Holy Week can be a bit overwhelming—especially when much of it will be done from your own home again this year. It’s helpful to remember that we aren’t alone; God is with us every step of the way—even through the most trying times. In today’s installment of “From My Living Room to Yours,” I revisit the “fiery furnace” story of King Nebuchadnezzar, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to better illustrate my point.
P.S. Please note our Holy Week schedule below. There will be multiple opportunities for you to journey toward Easter in community and in your own home.
